Subject Announcing HappyBase, a developer-friendly Python library to interact with HBase
Date Sun, 20 May 2012 22:14:01 GMT
Hi all,

I'm happy to announce HappyBase, a developer-friendly Python library to
interact with Apache HBase.

HappyBase is designed for for use in standard HBase setups, and offers
application developers a Pythonic API to interact with HBase.

Below the surface, HappyBase uses the Python Thrift library to connect to
HBase’s Thrift gateway, which is included in the standard HBase 0.9x
releases. HappyBase hides most of the details of the underlying RPC
mechanisms, resulting in application code that is cleaner, more productive
to write, and more maintainable.

The documentation, including an installation guide, a tutorial and an API
reference, can be found here:

  http://readthedocs.org/docs/happybase/

The code can be found here:

  https://github.com/wbolster/happybase

Please try it out. Feedback and patches welcome!
